Herman Maril:

The Strong Forms of Our Experience

January 27, 2016 - April 16, 2016

Gritty Baltimore streets, serene Cape Cod beaches, horses in Maryland fields—all were parts of the world of Herman Maril (1908–1986). Nearly 90 works by the great Mid-Atlantic modernist are coming to Arkansas from Maryland. This major exhibition surveying Maril’s career from the 1920s to the 1980s is a project on which the Arts Center’s Curator of Drawings, Ann Prentice Wagner, has been working for eight years.

Ansel Adams: Early Works

January 27, 2016 - April 16, 2016

Ansel Adams (1902-1984), photographer, musician, naturalist, explorer, critic and teacher, was a giant in the field of American landscape photography. His work can be viewed as the end of an arc of American art concerned with capturing the “sublime” in the unspoiled Western landscape. This tradition includes the 19th century painters Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Cole and Thomas Moran, and the 19th century photographers Carleton Watkins, Timothy O’Sullivan, and William Henry Jackson.
